Rats etc.

It’s getting a wee bit disconcerting walking round L’dod lake these days;today we saw one rat  trotting round the sluice before disappearing into the reeds at the side ! 3 Grebes still-one parent seems to have gone. IDSC_3439_filtered

n the garden 9 Goldfinches suddenly appeared to join the rabble. Also a Marsh tit and Nuthatches. House Martins still around.When you look at the East coast and see the swarms of rare migrants , you feel a bit deprived!

A sad case of Avian pox I believe-unfortunately we seem to have at least 3 Great tits afflicted-never seen it on other species , but it isn’t very pleasant.DSC_3386_filtered

Heather’s pics.

A  varied selection from Heather-signs of autumn ?I believe the fungus is panther cap (looking like a brown Fly Agaric) , but fungi are not my forte , so shout if I’m wrong.
